Would also love to see Scrivens continue to play well and locked up soon.
However, we've all seen what a top pick can do for our club with Hall, RNH, and Yakupov. To me, we've already had to suffer through 60 games,
so what's another 20 games when that means we can add a significant piece in the draft for the future.
At this point, I'm just gonna watch the games and be happy either way. If they do well and win.. great. If they lose.. great.
because at some point they need to show progression on the ice?
and in a draft like this, where there's no clear-cut favorite...drafting 1st and drafting 5th isn't as big a fall back as in most years
